Direct-to-Workflow Delivery and Cloud APIs Further Broaden Market Appeal of Easy-to-use Software
Signiant, the market leader in intelligent file movement
software for the media and entertainment industry, today announced several
enhancements to its award-winning Media Shuttle hybrid SaaS file sharing
solution. The new features further expand its capabilities for media
enterprises grappling with the challenge of delivering large videos or other
massive files fast, easily and securely over private networks and the public
Recently deemed a "standout solution among available
accelerated file transfer options" and winner of the 2012 "Best of
IBC" Award, Signiant's Media Shuttle has seen broad market adoption as the
simplest, most affordable way for media professionals to move large files. Since
the patent-pending software debuted six months ago, Media Shuttle is now used
by large broadcasters, Hollywood production companies, media service providers
and post-production facilities in every major market.
"With Media Shuttle, we have the ease of use and
flexibility of a cloud-based solution, but files arrive directly on a server
sitting on our premises, which cuts delivery time in half compared to other
products on the market," said George Rizkallah, founder and CEO of The
Product Factory, a Burbank-based creator of animation TV shows. "As a
subscription-based solution, Media Shuttle also lets us avoid sizable capital
outlays. After working for years with customers like Marvel and NFL Films who
routinely send us large digital files using Signiant's solutions, it's a
delight to be able to access all of the key capabilities of Signiant in an
affordable, easy to use tool like Media Shuttle."
With software deployed in the cloud, Signiant is able to
deliver continual enhancements to users without the typical hassles of software
upgrades. Available immediately, the latest enhancements include:
-- On-Ramp to Automated Workflows. Media Shuttle administrators can now configure
their branded file transfer portals to deliver content directly
to a network folder, providing an instant on-ramp to automated
file-based workflow operations, such as virus checking or transcoding. These workflows can be driven by Signiant's own powerful
Managers+Agents(TM) software for secure, automated system-to-system
movement, or any third-party workflow process.
-- Cloud-based APIs. Media Shuttle cloud APIs
enable Signiant customers
management intelligence on file transfer processes for business
analytics or to drive billing, content tracking, compliance and audit
systems. For example, a media company could use the data to
report identifying a list of users by department and files
transferred for internal chargeback.
The newest addition to Signiant's portfolio of accelerated
file transfer solutions, Media Shuttle provides an effective alternative to FTP
and public file sharing solutions -- without associated file size constraints
or security risks. Media Shuttle's hybrid SaaS architecture lets users access
fast file transfer capabilities through a simple interface in the cloud while
maintaining the file cache within the secure control of their own network.
Unlike other solutions, Media Shuttle gives IT the power to determine where
content is stored -- on private networks or in the cloud -- and how network
resources should be allocated for maximum enterprise efficiency. A flexible
subscription-based pricing model makes Media Shuttle the ideal solution for
project-based initiatives or enterprises looking to scale for demand.
The latest enhancements to Signiant's Media Shuttle are
available immediately in both Media Shuttle versions: Media Shuttle Standard
Edition, a downloadable single-portal solution for project teams up to 50; and
Media Shuttle Enterprise Edition, a multi-portal solution scalable to thousands
of users with features for delegated administration, storage management and
server load balancing to ensure optimal performance across multiple file
